2 Samuel 15:12 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Thus Absalom stole the heart of the men of Israel. גּנּב לב does not mean to deceive or cheat, like לב גּנּב in the Kal in Genesis 31:20, but to steal the heart, i.e., to bring a person over to his side secretly and by stratagem.
